Villa Aziz was a surprise for us. We were very worried about the road and no noisy disturbed our stay. It was a lovely house with all the facilities that you need. The pool are is so comfortable with two parasols and the BBQ. The kitchen was very helpful when we cooked as most of the time we had meals in Donnalucata (3 minutes drive) and Scicli (6 minutes drive). Recommended 100%

A Home from Home We looked for a homely, non touristy place to stay and were not disappointed .This is a family home with genuinely caring and helpful staff . We tended to eat out as the weather was warm .Rome is a city that comes alive in the evening too. A delightful, friendly place to stay and I would stay there again without hesitation. Beach Villas and staff were very helpful.
